A UConn CyberSEED event.
Official URL: http://www.cyberseed.org/
The CyberSEED Challenge is sponsored by Comcast Corporation. The competition is open to teams from high schools, community colleges, or 4-year colleges in the United States.
The software challenge asks students to design a buffer overflow attack and might appeal to students who have good programming skills.
The capture the flag challenge is similar to many existing cybersecurity challenges and should be appropriate for students who have taken basic network or web security classes.
Teams should register for the competition by September 26, 2014. Because of limited space, only the first 20 teams will be allowed to compete.
Each team that is accepted into the competition will be granted a travel award to help cover travel expenses. The amount depends on the location of the team and the number of team members.
Awards and Prizes: The teams will be evaluated by the amount of points they accumulate during the challenge. The top three teams will receive cash prizes. The top seven teams will also receive prizes. The total amount of prizes will be worth over $10,000.
